Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The series, which expects viewers to root for the Knights, shows how its members begin gaining self-esteem and feeling a sense of hope about their future as they work together to stage the perfect crime. But while this might help viewers sympathize with them, the fact remains that their cause really isn't that noble. Unlike Robin Hood, their true motivation isn't to help others, but rather to escape the day-to-day grind of their working-class life. And unlike the Ocean's Eleven gang, they aren't honest with themselves about the fact that they're engaging in criminal behavior.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
